RTI News-90 year old aunt of Sh. Narendra Modi struggling to get response to her RTI

Recommended Posts

A 90-year old widow claiming to be the aunt of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has knocked on the doors of an appellate authority after failing to get satisfactory answers from the Labour Ministry on her RTI application seeking details of lease renewal.

Dahiben Narottamdas Modi who claims to be the aunt of Prime Minister Narendra Modi had filed an RTI application in December last year in which she sought to know details of lease, renewals, norms for fixing rent, reasons for not renewing her lease every five years and whether the department was ready to pay arrears for periods in which lease was not renewed after five years, among others.

The matter reached the Commission after she failed to get satisfactory response of her Right to Information application and her first appeal before higher authorities remained unanswered, according to details submitted by Dahiben before the CIC. Dahiben claimed she was all alone and survived on the meagre rental income of Rs 1,500 from the building for which the revision of rent was pending.

While hearing the matter on June 21, Acharyulu observed that while she claimed to be a relative of the Prime Minister, she had not used it to influence the authorities.

It was only after not being provided a proper response that, in utter helplessness, she mentioned her relationship with the Prime Minister, he noted. He also asked some tough questions from the department about the ordeal faced by her and why penalty should not be imposed on the officers handling her RTI petition.

What is such relationship to do in RTI when every citizen is entitled ?
True.  There is no partiality among PIOs and they are united in denying information on one ground or other.
If it was given to local advocate, by this time he should have handled the matter in a befitting manner.
Providing CIC decision link help other citizens as such orders from Professor of Law is highly educative for citizens on RTI.
